We may not know exactly when Game of Thrones is returning to our television screens, but we do know that the series' ending will be "very satisfying" to viewers.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau spilled the beans–well, however many beans he's allowed to spill about the locked-down series–on Jaime Lannister, the show's upcoming eighth and final season.
The script for season 8 episode "Dragon and the Wolf" describes Jaime as “a lone horseman heading north on the Kingsroad.” The actor made mention of Jaime rocking a beard in the eighth season but kept mum about the details about Jaime's northern excursion
Coster-Waldau points out that he was happy with the ending of the series, and hopes the fans will be satisfied as well. "I wrote the writers when I finished reading and just said, 'I don't think you could've done a better job at finishing this story.'
To me, it was very satisfying but also very surprising and all the things that I was hoping for. It still made sense. It wasn't like one of those where the killer is suddenly revealed in the last act and you go, 'Oh! I didn't see that coming.' Here, they've done a really, really good job." He also reveals that the Lannister kids made it to the end.
He's going to miss the show pretty as much as the rest of the fans, it appears. He had a hard time coming to terms with the series' wrap.
